    I'd like to see Howard get on stage for the finale and then Sharon hit the x button to open a trap door which Howard falls through, a brief moment of surprise by the audience before the trapdoor closes and the winner rejoices.

    Or.

    A scene in the NBC offices where Howard keeps buzzing by the office where contracts are signed and they just ignore him until he finally goes away.

    It would be fitting, though, if one day people tuned in and some other judge was in Howard's place, but they never explained why or even acknowledged the change and hung up on any callers to the tv show that brout up the issue.

    If I was NBC, I wouldn't have hired the asshole in the first place.

    Handle it like the Ann Curry fiasco. Let the info leak and allow plenty of embarrasing stories to build in the press and then quietly replace him midshow.

    Nothing will happen. Much like his radio show, he will go out with a whimper.

    This will end just like American Idol ended for Ellen Degeneres. They will allow Howard to make up some bullshit excuse why he doesn't want to do a second year of AGT and make it look like he quit rather than him being fired. The only difference is there will be no one on the radio calling bullshit like Howard did with Ellen.

    "NBC tried their best to make me stay. They were actually proposing a new AGT, with just me as the judge. It was a whole thing. But Robin, a radio show & tv show -- it's too much. Quite frankly, i want to spend more time with my wife"

    I like the "trap door" scenario.

    When it happens, I hope he drops through first, leaving his wig suspended in the air momentarily before it falls through after him (like in a cartoon).

    I disagree with wife thing, but it will be the whole schedule with the radio show.

    "Yah know Robin, I have always put the radio show first. Although the show has never been better, I just don't think I can dedicate the time needed to continue putting on quality shows while doing the show and AGT at the same time."

    They should have the asshole that had the idea to hire Howard fire Howard. As soon as that asshole reports to his supervisor that Howard was done, they should fire him too.

    Of course I have never seen the show, never will. As far as I'm concerned they show fire any one that had anything to do with the stinking thing.

    America would be a better place.

    Followed by: "I proved to myself and to America that I could do network television, and be extremely successful at it, Robin. I was America's Judge! There's nothing left for me to prove.

    Bobo, you're on the air..."

    I am sure that he will sue NBC because he believes that the ratings for American Ninja Warrior should be counted towards his ratings bonus because the show's title is very similar to America's Got Talent and it airs right before AGT. Howard will argue that people tuned into that show thinking it was AGT and turned off NBC before they realized AGT aired right after it. So those are really AGT viewers.
